John Pidgeon, Chairman of the Board of Directors

John Pidgeon

My name is John Pidgeon and I am Chairman of the Board of Directors at Draper.

I was born to this job. Draper was founded by my great grandfather Luther Draper. My grandfather Elmer Pidgeon and my father Luther Pidgeon have served as Draper’s president.

My career here dates from the summer of 1957 when I began mowing the company lawn. The pay was good – $3.00 for four hours work. My job description and compensation have improved moderately since then.
